    Joseph Singer: I do a lot of work in my teaching on helping students make arguments on both sides of contested questions of law. I want to display an attractive and live alternative to reducing practical reason to instrumental reason. This cycle enables classroom instruction, professional development, and formative assessment to build on one another. For him, dialecticsophistry and eristic have no objective truth in view, but only the appearance of it, and pay no regard to truth itself because it aims at victory. When Aristotle says that ethos is the most authoritative source of belief he means that it both is and ought to be the most persuasive.

    For present purposes, I want to reduce the Rhetoric to three simple theses. Even in a large, diverse, and bureaucratic community such as the United States, we can find ethical and friendly argument at work. The program offers intensive professional development and instructional resources that support students in reading critically, exploring multiple points of view, and taking a stand on important issues. During the initial study of C3WP, teachers saw how beneficial the Using Sources Tool was for them and adapted it for direct use with their students. Although philosophers from Hume through Rawls have explored the circumstances of justice, the circumstances of friendship need equal attention. At issue is how to speak, to listen, and to create conditions in which rationality is thickened from the instrumental to the ethical.

    I can be an advocate trying to win, and still engage you rationally. Be concise. If everything is as it ought to be, the Rhetoric will work. The dinosaurs ruled the Earth before us because what they had is what worked. Alternatively, if students plan to offer a solution to a problem in their editorial, they may want to use our Problem-Solution Organizer PDF. What works survives and what doesn't, dies out.
